Blue Shade

Read comfortably at night…

Blue Shade is an exclusive Fire OS “Bellini” feature that works behind the scenes to automatically adjust and optimize the backlight for a more comfortable nighttime reading experience. Simply tap Blue Shade on the quick actions menu to turn on this feature and enjoy your favorite book, news article, app, or any other nighttime activity without straining your eyes.

…without giving up a good night’s sleep

Recent studies by Harvard Health Publications have shown that evening exposure to blue light from electronic screens can suppress our bodies’ production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone. The suppression of melatonin can prolong the time it takes to fall asleep, which in turn can delay REM sleep and reduce alertness the following morning. Blue Shade gives you the option to fine-tune the color settings, with the device intelligently adjusting the color filtering so that at any color or brightness, the blue wavelength light is always sufficiently suppressed compared to other wavelengths.

Play

Over 400,000 apps and games

Fire tablets feature instant access to thousands of the most popular free and best-selling games, social media, premium TV and movie providers, and so much more.

Top Customer Reviews

By Neelahs L. TOP 500 REVIEWER on January 14, 2016
This bundle includes an 8” Fire HD 8 (currently sold for 149.99 with offers, 15 extra for without), an Incipio Clarion Folio case (certified by amazon, which is currently sold in 5 different colors for the same price at 24.99), and a Nupro Screen Protector set (pack of 2, currently sold for 19.99). Currently, the total price if you buy all the items separately is 187.97 (vs the current bundle price of 177.97, hence saving you 10 bucks). As an Amazon device fanatic, I have used every device sold by amazon, and will try my best to review it to the best of my ability. Since you’re here, I presume you already have some knowlege about at least the tablet, so I will try and keep it as short and sweet.

Before I go into my experiance with these three products, I’ll tackle the question I get asked the most: With special offers, or without? These “Special Offers” aren’t at all in the way. It’s an interesting marketing technique on Amazon’s part, but personally, I have found it to be more helpful than in the way. Many of the books which I have read have been due to Amazon’s ads’ recommendation. It’s certainly not worth to pay a rather hefty ($15) price to get rid of them, but you always have the option if you want to.

---------------The Fire HD 8, 8” (and comparison to the HD 10)---------------

The Fire HD 8 has a resolution with 189 ppi (pixels per inch). In comparison, weirdly enough, the Fire HD 10 (the bigger, 10” tablet) has a resolution of 149 ppi (pixels per inch). So, in terms of the bigger tablets, if you’re going to be choosing between the 8 or the 10, I would always say go with the 8. While it may not seem so on the surface, the 8 is much more portable than the 10. I mean, you can see that with just the weight too: the 8 weighs ~11oz and the 10 weighs ~15.2oz.
